|Great family area with low traffic. The backyard faces an open land preserve with water-views and great sunsets. Located on a 7 mile salt water pond with an inlet to the ocean. Launch area just footsteps away. Multi-level wrap around decks, screen porch and pergola. 2 family rooms and an upper level loft area with large glass windows that open to 2nd floor deck. 3 full baths (main bath has 5' stone shower with frameless glass enclosure and 5 Ft vanity) also an outdoor shower. Walk kayaks to launch area.|
The home was perfect for our two families. Lovely decks. We had everything we needed.
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The home is central to all local beaches and is located in a peaceful neighborhood. As stated, the home has all the amenities and is clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space to spread out to enjoy all the sounds nature provides being so close to the salt pond.
We enjoyed a relaxing week in this home. It is large, comfortable, modern and clean. It is a house with ample room indoor and outdoor for the family to spread out. The decks are gorgeous and the sunsets were enjoyed nightly! The photographs do not do justice! This house is just steps from a boat launch for Ninigret Pond. Unfortunately, we do not own kayaks and they are not supplied by the owner. You can rent kayaks near Charlestown Beach and we had a great time renting kayaks and paddleboards there. The house includes a beach pass and the beaches in Charlestown are spectacular and nearby the home. The house itself is modern and equipped with everything you might want or need on vacation. The kitchen is well-outfitted for cooking a large dinner, with beautiful appliances, knives, glassware, etc. I highly recommend this home if you are looking to stay near - but not "on" - the beach in Charlestown, RI.
We had a great week in this charming Charlestown house. We loved the decks, and we had plenty of room to spread out with our family of 5. The owner, Jim, was friendly and responsive--when we had a problem with a blocked drain, he came the next day to fix it. The kitchen is well-stocked. Only thing missing is a drying rack for hand-washing dishes. The beach pass to Blue Shutters was fantastic--what a beautiful beach. Recommended!
We stayed in this house in August 2010. True to all the other reviews this house was very clean and well equipped. It has a great location in Charlestown, close to everything. We love the area and this house is central to all the things you love to do. We brought kayaks (there is a rental place nearby) and went out on the pond every day. The house has everything you need for a fun week at the beach. Having wifi and dvd players kept the teenagers well entertained in the evenings and we had family fun with Monopoly and jigsaw puzzles.
We had a wonderful vacation in Charlestown. We were lucky to be able to rent such an amazing house on short notice! The house is beautiful: great decks, quiet neighborhood, beautiful sunsets, all the amenities. We never once had to say, 'I wish we had...' you had it all and then some! We look forward to renting next summer!!
WOW....another wonderful vacation. Although the weather did not cooperate, we all had a great time. The new bathroom is awesome....the little guys had alot of "firsts" this year....crabbing, fishing, kayaking. The house is just perfect. Will contact you for next year!! Thanks so much for sharing your terrific house with us.
Picture Perfect Vacation!!! A home of beauty and comfort in an idyllic location......used all our toys..and some of yours !! See you next year...
Generally, a splendid, well-equipped house and a nice experience. Two suggestions: (1) We had to get up at 6 AM our final day since we had used the house's sheets and towels, and had to wash and dry them. Allowing guests to pay a reasonable fee for this might be a nice alternative. (2) A drying rack would be nice, so the dishwasher cd be used less often. Otherwise, a very nice experience.
had the greatest time, the house is impecable, the computer was a god send for a fourteen year old on a rainy day. we've been coming to charlestown for a number of years and your HOME has been the BEST. we'll be in contact shortly for next years(05) rental.
We loved the closeness to the water...we had a great time in our kayaks!! Everyone appreciated how much work has been put into the house. The kids especially loved the cozy chairs upstairs and all of us were glad to be able to check our email. Board games were another plus (everyone is now hooked on Cranium!).

Had a very positive experience. It was great being so close to some beaches, Block Island Ferry and some very good restaurants. The observation deck was a real great addition this year. Looking forward to next year.
The house is beautiful, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Love the decks and view, especially from upper deck. Took the boat to the private beach area overlooking the ocean. Did some fishing but unfortunately, didn't catch any. A plus was that we were able to access our email while we were gone and do a little web surfing. Looking forward to next year.
